Haven’t posted anything since the last week of May. Show of hands: who missed me? (*Crickets.* As I suspected…) But just in case you think I’ve been sitting on my duff doing nothing in my blogging absence, the truth is, I’ve been
I’ve cut way back on dairy for a while now, and it seems to be doing good things for me. (I still eat my butter and my heavy cream, because, really, you do not want to interact with me sans coffee, and while I can, on occasion, drink it black, I much prefer it with cream. So the Paleo police can just
bite me understand that I am not,
and never will be 100% Paleo, nor do I aspire to be.)
Why am I cutting back on dairy? Why is this cheese, sour cream, yogurt, and cottage cheese-loving gal eschewing these things these days? Just a little experiment. I may or may not be dealing with some excessive estrogen “stuff,” and I figure it couldn’t hurt to consume fewer products that come from a lactating mama cow, know what I mean? (But as I said, you can pry the butter and cream from my cold, dead hands.)
But just because I’m not partaking of my usual amount of dairy at the moment doesn’t mean I can’t give you a heads up about two very delicious cheeses I “discovered” a few months ago. And no trip to Switzerland required! (Although that would be nice. If you care to buy me a plane ticket [and put me up somewhere], I’d be happy to send you my address offline, hehheh.) All you need is a local Trader Joe’s, which has a pretty awesome cheese selection, most of which is available at a not exorbitant price.
So next time you find yourself hankering for a little somethin’ somethin’ from the dairy case, check out these two cheeses. They are both pretty darn yummy. (But do be careful – both can also be kind of addictive and hard to wrap up and put back in the fridge. The Red Leicester far more than the Pesto Gouda, IMHO.) As always, please excuse my crap photography skills.
This is ridiculously good. Purchase and proceed with caution.
You have been warned.
Note the basil-y goodness. Gouda cheese? Pesto?
What’s not to love? (Except maybe the gratuitous umlauts?)
OT: "Gratuitous umlauts" would be an awesome name for a band.
P.S. I’m not sure where to go next in the fuel partitioning series. Is there anything specific you’re curious about? Something you want me to write about? Preferably something that hasn’t already been covered ad nauseum on a million other blogs? I have a separate series on “TOFI” in the works (“thin outside, fat inside,” a.k.a. “skinny fat” or “normal weight obese”), but I’m hoping to mine for some more gold in fuel metabolism first.
